You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Bingham and elsewhere in Nottinghamshire is an adversarial experience.

Just bought a semi-detached house in Bingham , how long should it take for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Bingham conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be sure the post completion formalities are concluded.
As far as conveyancing in Bingham registration is no faster or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies. Currently roughly three quarters of submission are fully addressed within 12 days but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration is effected after the purchaser is living at the property so 'speed' is not always top priority but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I've recently bought a leasehold property in Bingham. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
